John Crane GmbH ha annunciato oggi che è stato assegnato un nuovo importante contratto per la fornitura di soluzioni tecnologiche di tenuta ad un importante progetto di produzione di gas naturale liquefatto (LNG) in Australia, il più grande del suo genere al mondo.
This win underlines how the company’s continuous programme of research and development allows it to offer advanced products which can satisfy new market requirements as they emerge.
John Crane fornirà a 96 i suoi avanzati sigilli di gas tipo 28 per applicazioni di primo livello a Siemens AG, che fornirà i compressori per la sezione a monte del progetto AP-LNG nel Queensland. Questo progetto comporterà l'estrazione e il trasporto del gas di carbone per la conversione in GNL in futuro.
The order also includes the supply of 216 of John Crane’s tilting pad journal and double thrust hydrodynamic bearings. This highlights the diverse product range which is helping the company become the provider of choice for integrated rotating equipment solutions.
Paul Cox, President of John Crane, said: “This type of coal seam gas conversion is a relatively new process. The fact that we are able to supply advanced products that have already been thoroughly proven in use highlights the benefits of developing solutions that satisfy our customers’ future requirements as well as their current ones.”
This is a major new order for first-fit equipment on a project which has the capacity to produce 18 million tonnes of LNG. “That indicates the potential size of the aftermarket opportunities which will follow and those are opportunities from which John Crane is now ideally placed to benefit,” Mr. Cox added. “This project also reflects the recent upturn we have seen in first-fit projects, especially on stalled projects which are now being brought back on stream. This is creating a number of new opportunities in both the extraction and refining sectors, many of which we have been able to convert in new orders.”
